Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 Review
By Matt Metzker
|Good outdoor image quality, facial recognition register, solid metal construction, SRAuto mode to help with selecting the best shooting selection, good HD video option with "movie" like 24fps frame rate, long battery life, natural + flash mode is a cool new idea|
|Below average shooting
performance; poor indoor shooting performance, no continuous shooting mode, weak flash|
|The Fujifilm FinePix JZ500 disappointed when it came to overall performance, but did very good when it came to outdoor photography. Read more in our Full Conclusion.|
